    ... unfolding on this very ground. The famous little hamlet to where people come from all over the world to hear the heroic stories has had almost no change with the passing of time, some of the original buildings still stand and when there are no tours taking place it has a stillness that invades your spirt in a strangely calming way.

    ... are protecting you are busy chaning a tire and the gun is safely INSIDE the jeep!! Not to worry, we hopped back in the jeep and after a little longer drive eventually saw some track, first was a giraffe track that headed back the way we had come so we continued on.
